not have the same power it did 50 years ago. of browning of america produced the first black president and something about listening to that fear is legitimate and those in power have to give it up. we have to listen to the other side to figure out the common ground to push to a place we can feel good about what is possible if we come together and think critically of our past to imagine our future together. >> host: what type of class is to teach? >> guest: i do a lot of film. i am also a film maker. refocus on graduate courses for mediums for scholarships. they say they like the books but the only people there reid them are the scholars but in a film everybody will see the project. that is essential but also the idea if you think about the world and use film to tell a story it may allow you to say different things but it is a good vehicle to produce these scholarships for your colleagues. what about the visual dissertation or produces knowledge with images and sound to count as scholarship the way a journal article would count. we do a lot of that work with the graduate curriculum. i
